I was in elementary school when this was first shown on TV. We had excerpts from the series to read in our Scholastic Book Magazine. I was reading the original Martian Chronicles novel at the time. It is hard to believe it was just under 40 years ago that this came out. A lot of water under the bridge since then. I see this series a lot differently at 50 now than I did at 12 back then. Amazing thing this internet. You can be reunited with an old show you almost forgot about from decades back. There are so many rare jems here on Internet Archive that you cannot find on YT.
What was cool about this show was that the whole series had a Star studded cast. Many now sadly are no wonder with us. I will say the Martian Chronicles (1980) has held up pretty well over the years. I know Ray Bradbury did not like it at all but if it gets someone to start reading the book then that is all for the better.
Thanks for uploading this from an old Generation Xer....
